    Way back in the day I had a Phantom Skinz clear wrap for my Palm Pre that worked really well and helped keep it from getting scratched a drop or two. Since then I've had a colored Slickwrap on my Pebble watch but that felt more like a cheap sticker than the protective wrap.

    Anyone have an option on Phantom Skinz, Slickwraps or any other brand?

    been waiting to hear about this on multiple threads ... also been looking at other things that don't seem to have many reviews ... like those glass Hardness coatings Liquid Sapphire NanoState ... and so on ... tho I haven't seen anyone on here back them up

    Yeah I've been reading every thread about them. At $25-$30+ for a skin/wrap I'm trying to do research and get others opinion prior to making a purchase.

    BSE - bestskinsever.com has always been the best and some of the best pricing. They have glossy and matte finishes, simple and full wraps, and body only, or screen included. I would go for body only and if you feel you must protect the screen, go with a Spigen or other tempered glass protector.

    BSE beats Zagg, BodyGuardz, and all of the other body skins out there. I've used their stuff on all generations of iPhone, iPads, MacBooks, etc.

    I just purchased the alien skin from nanostate. Seems the best out there, lifetime guarantee as well

    This guy knows what's he talking about! I've always gone with the BSE back protection for my iPhones.

    BSE seems to be the only one that doesn't list a lifetime warranty which is slightly concerning.

    For me with a skin it comes down to the cutouts/fit and using a quality clear material that doesn't peel or discolor. I'm hoping for quality over super cheap. Considering the body is the basically same as the 6 plus and 6S plus I thought there would be substantially more reviews and YouTube videos about this out there.

    I concur that I wish BSE offers a warranty, but their skins are extremely solid, and doesn't discolor or scratch easily under normal usage, so it's understandable they don't offer a warranty.

    I'm not a fan of their glossy as I always liked Matte, but once you put it on, it looks like there's nothing even there. I'm only referring to their back protection.

    I ordered glossy for jet black, seems like the smart choice for that rather than matte. If I wanted matte i would get the Matte black iPhone

    Did you order one from BSE? My Jet Black 7 Plus was delivered today. Not opening it until I can figure out the best way to apply the skin. Wish I could pay someone to put it on. Lol. I ordered the glossy finish from BSE.

    Could you guys post a picture? I got a Spigen case and it makes my jet black iphone very ugly with all the bubbles. I am looking for an alternative to show off my gorgeous phone :D

    Should I get the case fit or the regular film? Also should I get the slim version or the full wrap? I will be using my Spigen clear case with it.

    Ugh so many people complaining on Twitter about Slickwraps being slow to get their shipment out of their door and customer service not be responsible. Does not instill confidence in me. No prime shipping skins/wraps for the 7 plus on Amazon either. If anyone has 2 day ship they would certainly get my business and a positive review for shipping and customer service.

    After days of no shipping info and no response from Slickwraps I ordered a glossy skin for the back only from from Best Skins Ever with 2 day shipping for $12. Im planning to just cover the back of the phone

    I can not recommend BestSkinsEver enough: http://www.bestskinsever.com/cell-phones/apple-iphone

    They are absolutely amazing, albeit a bit frustrating to get on because it does take time with the wet install. You have to be very patient. I have them on my Macbook Pro and my iPad Pro. Excellent customer service as well.

    I know this sounds like I was paid by the company to say this but I wasn't ha. I just really love their products.

    Ya.... their shipping and customer service non-response really sucks! Ruins a good product... Problem is I don't think they'll learn cuz it's been this way a couple of years now!

    Which option would I order to just order a glossy back for 7 plus. There is simple full.

    Not sure which is which.
